Market On Wheels is a new collaboration between Bugis Junction and Bugis+ that features a container playground with a variety of food stalls. Running till 8 July 2018 & till 15 July at Bugis+, expect to feast on delectable food and drinks while catching live music performances and World Cup screenings!
During the day, the containers are the perfect backdrop for your photos, however during the evening/night is the best time to fulfill your photo-taking desires.
Be greeted with the countless fairy lights and neon installations around the market while munching on your favourite foods.
Here are our top picks from the market:
1. Fries X Fries ($6) from Fries X Fries
This snack comes with 3 different types of fries, namely regular, spam and sweet potato. Enjoy a good balance of sweetness and savoriness in this three-in-one dish. The highlight was definitely the spam fries which added a heartiness to the snack. If this combination of fries isn’t for you, each of the individual fries are also available for your snacking pleasure.
Out of the six sauces available, my personal favourite was the Special Aioli which was creamy, garlic-y and full of flavour. If you want something that packs a punch try the Super Spicy Thai Chilli for a kick of spice. Lastly, for something universal that goes with all the fries, the Nachos Cheese is the way to go.
All fries come with one sauce but additional portions of sauce are priced at $0.50.
2. Yakiniku Ribeye Beef ($10) from The Swag Social
Reminiscent of the Taiwanese flaming beef cubes, the Yakiniku Ribeye Beef from The Swag Social is hearty and tasty. The yakinuku sauce really shone through, with a strong soy flavour.
The beef itself was tender, juicy and made us want more with each bite. However, for $10, it is a little pricey for the portion given but it’s still delicious nonetheless,
3. Prawn Paste Chicken ($12) from Abracowdabra
Prawn Paste Chicken, or more affectionately known as Har Cheong Kai are chicken wings marinated in prawn paste before being deep fried. For $12, you get 4 wings and drumlets at Abracowdabra. The wings themselves were crispy and light, without a strong greasy flavour.
The dish is served with 2 dipping sauces – a Thai chilli and a kecap manis (sweet soy) sauce. The Thai chilli was especially spicy while the dark sauce was a well-balanced mix of sweet, salty, spicy and sour from the kick of lime. I recommend having the wings with the kecap manis any day.
4. Mango Sticky Rice ($6.50) from Rattana Thai Restaurant
Having tried and enjoyed food from this stall at Artbox Singapore 2018, I was pleasantly surprised to see them opening a booth at MOW. This time, I tried the dessert – Mango Sticky Rice. The portion consisted of around half a mango and a small mound of sticky rice.
The mango was a little tart which cut through the richness of the sticky rice well. Personally, I prefer my mangoes slightly tangy than completely sweet. However, I think the dessert fell a little short without a drizzle of coconut milk to tie it all together. A good dessert to share!
Apart from eating, live World Cup matches will also be screen for free so join in the crowds of fans to cheer on your favourite teams! There are 2 screens and multiple speakers around to you can be assured to catch the action just as it happens.
Do head down and let us know what you think!

MOS Burger to open at Waterway Point in Aug 2019
Easties rejoice! It seems that a new MOS Burger outlet will soon be opening at Waterway Point in August this year.
The famous fast food chain is still under construction at the mall where pictures were snapped.
The construction signage claimed that this new MOS burger outlet will be opening in August so you’ll be able to get your fix really soon.
The restaurant will be located at B1 next to Breadtalk.
The new MOS burger outlet will not be alone though. Famous Fillipino fast food joint, Jollibee, recently opened a new branch in the mall on the same level to massive queues.
Are you excited for the new eateries coming to Punggol?
Jollibee is finally open at Waterway Point and the queues are insane
It is no secret that Singaporeans love their fried chicken, especially the ones from the famous Filipino fast-food chain, Jollibee.
When people heard that an outlet would be opening at Waterway Point on 18 July (Friday), you can bet that many people were pretty excited about the news.
And to show their enthusiasm, some people started queueing outside the store from as early as 7.30am.
Jollibee snapped some pictures of the insane queues and shared them on Facebook to show everyone how well-loved their fried chicken is.
One reason for the long queues was that the first 100 people in the line were entitled to the very adorable Jollibee pillows. The lucky first 5 customers managed to walk away with the limited edition Jollibee Funko POP! Figurine.
So, if you’re a fried chicken lover and you live near Waterway Point, you definitely need to check Jollibee’s new outlet out (maybe after the queues have died down)!
Address: 83 Punggol Central, Singapore 828763
Opening Hours: 8am – 10pm

Famous Burger Joint Five Guys is opening an outlet in Singapore by end of 2019
Queued 2 hours for Shake Shack but it didn’t quite make the cut? Fret not as you can look forward to sinking your teeth into another popular American burger joints burgers pretty soon.
Five Guys is slated to open an outlet at Plaza Singapura by the end of 2019 and they will most likely be situated near the main atrium at the ground level of the mall.
For those of you who have been living under a rock and do not know what Five Guys are, they essentially are a burger joint that specialises in outrageously juicy and lip-smackingly good burgers that are made from 100% freshly ground beef.
The brand has 8 burgers on their menu which ranges from the classic Cheeseburger to the more sinful Bacon Cheeseburger.
One thing that makes Five Guys so popular is the fact that you are given the freedom to choose as many toppings as you please; from tangy relish to juicy grilled mushrooms, you’ll undoubtedly be spoilt for choice!
We are unsure if the Singapore menu will be the same as their American counterpart but we are sure that either way, it’ll taste amazing!
